Donald Trump's former personal lawyer, facing potential arrest in NY, has declared his first loyalty is to his family and the country, signaling a willingness to cooperate with prosecutors against the president.
In April, Mr Trump blamed news outlets for trying to destroy his relationship with Mr Cohen, tweeting that he did not think he would "flip" allegiances. Officials are also looking into a $130,000 payment he made to Stormy Daniels in exchange for her silence on what may or may not have happened between her, Trump, and a rolled up Forbes magazine.
Asked whether Trump had prior knowledge of both events, Cohen demurred, saying that he couldn't comment on advice of his counsel.
"When they searched my hotel room and my home, it was obviously upsetting to me and my family", he continued.
Lakers reportedly have not offered Brandon Ingram in trades
According to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne, Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst, the Spurs and Lakers are talking Leonard again. Smith said Thursday that James "reached out to Kevin Durant via text, from what I'm told, about coming to Los Angeles".
Stephanopoulos said that in several instances, Mr Cohen broke with Mr Trump in characterising the federal investigations.
Discussing the ABC interview on CNN's "New Day", CNN Chief Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin said Cohen's interview "clearly implies that he will make a deal with the government if there are charges against him and testify, cooperate, rather than sort of hold the line for Donald Trump".
Cohen in the past has said that the payment was made on his own initiative.
"I want to answer".
"I don't agree with those who demonise or vilify the FBI", Mr Cohen said. Trump later told reporters Cohen did a small fraction of his overall legal work.

Cohen is under intensifying scrutiny from federal prosecutors in Manhattan who are examining his business practices, as well as special counsel Robert Mueller, who is continuing to investigate episodes involving Cohen as part of his probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election.
There are signs Cohen is actively seeking such a deal, significantly including his recent hire of a new lawyer, Guy Petrillo, formerly a federal prosecutor in the Southern District of New York (SDNY), the office now prosecuting Cohen.

When asked by Stephanopoulos whether he believes the Russians interfered in the presidential campaign, Cohen's answer came in the form of support for the agencies that have said such interference did occur.
"I don't know why he would do this", Napolitano said. Cohen has been under criminal investigation for months because of his business dealings, the Justice Department has said.

Cohen told Stephanopoulos, when asked if he had any regrets, that he "tried to make good faith judgments in the past", but acknowledged that he's not flawless. He also told Vanity Fair, "I'm the guy who would take a bullet for the president", adding, "I'd never walk away". "I want to regain my name and my reputation and my life back".
